Probably best oatmeal stout I've had. Tasted in '12, had a 2011 and 2012 side by side. 11 had a wider mouth and side palate chocolatey flavor and heaviness. 12 more carbonated and a bit more top palate taste of chocolate. But full flavor and full mouthfeel and a delicious oatmeal linger for a nice sipping stout profile - December 27, 2012
Okay. Quite coffee tasting.

Hearty goodness. Definitely worth drinking. Slight sweet edge, chewable, pleasant.

Very dark brown w/ khaki head. Smoky, toasted malt nose leads to coffee, bittersweet chocolate & caramel flavors. Medium body & smooth mouthfeel. Delicious stout. Velvet indeed.

I had the nitro pour from the brewery and, well, it was just another stout. It wasn't bad but, ah, it's a stout. Interestingily enough, Cece recommended I sip it after a bit of the ice cream with fudge on my spoon. Oh , man, it changed the entire flavor and impression of it! But, on its own, it's just a stout.

Subtle chocolate espresso without a bitter bite. Just f-ing delicious from aroma to finish!

Chocolate and stout like. Worth a few goes... Oatmeal not obvious, coffee is. Like a mocha
